INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra is adjusting some of its policies due to COVID-19.
The ISO will require proof of COVID vaccination or a negative coronavirus test for anyone ages 12 and older to attend performances and events at Hilbert Circle Theatre.
Beginning Nov. 1, only those patrons who are fully vaccinated will be allowed inside.
Masks are required at all times for all guests, including children over two, regardless of vaccination status. Masks do not have to be worn while eating or drinking.
“The dramatic rise in COVID-19 infections in Central Indiana made it necessary for us to rethink our vaccination, testing and mask policies,” said ISO CEO James Johnson in an email to patrons. “To safeguard the health and security of our guests, performers, staff and volunteers, we believe this is the safest and most equitable way to provide in-person, live performances.”
To enter Hilbert Circle Theatre, concertgoers must display an entry pass generated by the Bindle app, which allows users to store their COVID-19 test and records securely. Unvaccinated guests must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test; the test must be administered no more than 72 hours prior to the performance.
Guests who can’t show proof of vaccination or a recent negative test can request a refund or credit to their account by calling the ISO Box Office (317.639.4300).
